Aki was born and raised in a small town of Japan located about one hour away from Osaka. She grew up and has spent most of her years in the Kansai region surrounded by Japanese and Osaka's traditions and cultures, which makes her an expert on the Osaka culture and people. She is also fluent in English and knows well about western culture after having spent a few years in the United States. She’s now been living in Osaka and working as a professional tour guide specialized in Osaka general culture and food.
Yoko studied Chinese at the University of Osaka, which led her to working with various trading companies in Japan. After 12 years, she decided to leave this career behind to pursue her real passion: cooking. She started her own cooking school, gained her official tour guide license and has not looked back. She aims to show Japan to tourists through not only food, but also history and culture. She has won awards from the Osaka Convention and Tourism Bureau and has been featured in the UK newspaper 'The Telegraph'. Her recent learning obsession is fermentation and her kitchen has pots of miso, soy sauce, and Koji bacteria powder packets. She believes that food has the power to make the world a more peaceful place. "May food be with you!"
